Review: ForceCore Armament FC-109 M4 AEG

fc109_review

ForceCore is, to me and many Airsofters out there, a new name and a new player in the market. One of my latest reviews was a first for me, not just in terms of the brand itself but also in terms of an AEG which I had never seen or used before: the Spectre SMG.

So it was not so easy to gauge the actual quality of this brand (although the quality of the Spectre is seemingly good) since I had no other references.

Now with the AR15/M4 platform, things are a bit different since I consider myself not an expert, but someone who has owned enough M4s for long enough to be able to form an opinion on the subject!

So things are a bit clearer when looking at the FC-109 M4 AEG from Gunfire and it’s really interesting to find out how ForceCore is becoming more and more a brand to keep an eye on!

ARES M110 SASS DMR Review

 

ares_m110_sass_review

The time has come for me to try out the DMR, or the designated marksman rifle role. And just why did I choose this role over perhaps the sniper role? Basically because the DMR role sits somewhere between having an assault rifle and having a sniper rifle, only with a few very nice perks!

BOLT Airsoft BR-47 KeyMod BRSS Review

B21

I was able to review one of the best, if not the best EBB in the market:

This is my first Bolt Airsoft AEG so I was going pretty much into uncharted territory as I never owned one of these. However, this is my second EBB (Electric Blow Back) and I’ve had the opportunity to try, during skirmishes the notorious Tokyo Marui Recoils. Also, this gun features a unique design that is not very common, since it brings together two worlds that are often apart: the AK47 and AR-15 platforms. In fact, the BR-47 is based on one of the world’s rarest fire-arms: the KAC SR-47.

 

This AEG, oops! EBB, is already quite unique in its design and history, so I guess the question that is in all airsofters’ minds must be answered: exactly how does the Bolt BR-47 stack up against the new breed of EBBs and how good is it?

So I was very curious about this gun, as I’m sure you are too, so, if you want to find out all about it just keep reading here.

ASG Scorpion EVO 3 A1 Review

ASG, Scorpion EVO 3 A1, Review, Operator7, Airsoft, AEG,

ASG, Scorpion EVO 3 A1, Review, Operator7, Airsoft, AEG,

This is probably one of the AEG’s that I had no clue what I was going to get and I was really in for a very, very nice surprise!

 

First launched in 2009 by gun manufacturer Česká Zbrojovka from Czech Republic to replace the original Scorpion CZ, it is now licensed and produced in its Airsoft version by ASG (Action Sport Games), the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1 is a modern submachine gun with fully polymer frame.

The new design means there are no traces of the old Scorpion. This results in a completely different and futuristic design, but more importantly an unmatched ergonomics.

This means the gun is quite easy to operate and most of the controls are ambidextrous, such as the fire selector, charging handle and magazine release button. However, there is one exception, and that is the bolt release lever which is placed on the left hand side of the gun. The sling hook can be positioned on any side and you can even get another one to have it on both sides.

Review: Claw Gear Combat Shirt In Coyote Brown

clawgear_combatshirt_cb_review_01

A Coyote Brown combat shirt is perhaps the most neutral shirt you’ll ever have. It provides some degree of concealment and at the same time will work great with most patterns and camos, allowing you to use it with various types of loadouts. I’ve seen people wearing tan shirts with Multicam loadouts and it works great.

At first I was a bit skeptical if this shirt would work with the A-TACS camo, but after I tested it with my A-TACS loadout I really think it combines quite well with this tactical camouflage too.

When Connor from Crypsis, one of our partners based in Canada sent me this shirt for review I must admit I didn’t have any products from Claw Gear  before and the brand was pretty much unfamiliar to me. They produce tactical apparel, from trousers, jackets and shirts to patches.

So it seemed quite interesting to see how this shirt would perform on the field.

ARES AMOEBA Honey Badger Review

IMG_7736

Here is my latest review on the ARES Amoeba Honey Badger, published on A.C.E.:

I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the first units to arrive in the UK of the new ARES Amoeba AM-013DE.

This is another very exclusive and unique gun brought from the real steel world, and probably as many of you might know made quite an appearance in Call of Duty Ghosts.

The original Honey Badger was made by AAC or Advance Armament Corporation, made its first public appearance back in 2012 and was initially created by request of the special operations community who was looking for a familiar gun system to effectively replace guns such as the Heckler&Koch MP5 and other similar PDW’s. This new system had to be lightweight, prepared for sub sonic round for suppressed sound and flash, reliable .30 caliber compatible,                low recoil and have the ability to penetrate barriers with a high mass projectile. Hence the Honey Badger was born!

A.C.E. Gen2 Tactical Universal Clip review

Published on March 3, 2014 by in News

ace_review_header2013

Here’s a great review from our friends and partners in crime from Airsoft Community Europe on the Gen2 Tactical Universal Clip:

Well I am sure that this piece of kit needs no introduction by now and as per this reviewers prediction the Tactical Universal Clip system has taken the airsoft market in the UK, Europe and USA by storm! When I was writing the first review a few months ago I was aware of some small changes, updates if you will, that were being carried out by the team from TUC and the principle one was some minor changes to the ‘chest plate’ that the pin on either the M4 or Solid Stock marries too.

TUC-Gen-2-SA58-2-765x506

Review – Voodoo Tactical Europe Crossfire Gloves

Published on November 9, 2013 by in News, Reviews

Luvas

For the past few weeks i’ve been testing some products from our friends Voodoo Tactical Europe, starting with the Voodoo Tactical – Crossfire Gloves.

As you well know finding a glove that gives you the protection and the dexterity you need in game is no easy task, and sometimes we have to give up one to have the other, luckly with the Crossfire Gloves provide you with both aspects and to help even more they are really comfortable to wear.

Photo 13

 These Voodoo Tactical gloves have several reinforced sections to provide you a good level of  protecction, and despite the reinforced protections with wrapped fingers (the part where your finger bends, not the knuckle), wrapped digit protection,reinforced thumbs and padded palms, the Crossfire Gloves still manage to be comfortable enough to wear for extended periods of time.All the high wear and typically ripped areas (on other gloves) are reinforced with a double stitching  to ensure that the gloves will last you for a long time.

The top of the hand is mainly made out of elastic four way spandex nylon that provides for a snug fit without overheating your hand or impede you moviments.

Photo 7

The palm on the Voodoo Tactical Crossfire Gloves is made of Amara synthetic leather to keep you hands warm in the cold weather and they are also padded to protect the palm of your hand for when you have to grab a rope,a bush, you’re RIS rail or for when you fall and use your hands for support.

Photo 1

The Crossfire Gloves straps to your wrist with a elastic band also made of elastic spandex that you can adjust with velcro in the rubberized tab, that not only looks badass with the Voodoo Tactical logo but also protects your wrist from being hit with a BB.

Photo 5

Overall the Voodoo Tactical Crossfire Gloves proved to be really high quality not only for Airsoft and other “extreme” activities but also for regular every day use, as they are really comfortable while offering a good amount of protection.

And with a price tag of only €19.95 it will be really hard to find something better or even with the same quality at this price. The Voodoo Tactical – Crossfire Gloves are available in Black, OD Green, Coyote,Foliage and Army Digital ACU at http://www.voodootactical.eu/

Review: Helikon Mojave Desert Boots Coyote in Multicam

B1

This is my first review after some forced time off, since I moved to London and it took me some time to get settled here, so I am hoping to get back to regular my reviews and Airsoft playing from now on! Anyway, before coming over, I’ve had enough time to check out the new Mojave Desert Boots which basically are the first boots from Helikon-Tex.

Helikon-Tex are well known for setting a very high standard when it comes to tactical gear, and this is what I’ve also learned firsthand when using their ACU Uniform in Camogrom and their Urban Tactical Pants more recently.

However, tactical footwear is slightly different and I was curious to know how it would be to wear these Polish-made boots on the field.

Our friends from Military1st were one of the first stores in Europe to get these boots in stock and were kind enough to send a pair to review, and quite frankly I was dying of curiosity to try them out!

Review: Vortex Optics VMX-3T Magnifier

myPrecious

 

Here’s Operator7 latest review on Popular Airsoft:

Vortex has come a long way from being a less known (at least to us Airsofters), low cost optics maker for hunting rifles to a rising star in this competitive industry. Even the Stickman now uses their awesome optics in his photos alongside with top of notch AR15s and other real steel dream stuff such as BattleComp compensators, Magpul, SureFire, Noveske, among others.

This review is also sort of a tribute to the Stickman’s work, since I opted to bring his style of photography onto Airsoft and used my humble Canon Powershot SX 100IS to try and recreate his shots, utterly failing nonetheless. 🙂

As for Vortex’s products, I had the opportunity to review the Sparc Red Dot last year and have been using it ever since, since it has become one of my favourite optics thanks to its quality, aggressive pricing and features.

And now, thanks to ASGShop.pl I have been lucky enough to use and review the VMX-3T Magnifier which coupled with the Sparc red dot offers an awesome hybrid solution.
